2017 – July Calendar…

So succulent plants are a hot trend for 2017…I’ve heard this.  Personally, I absolutely love them and have several.

So what did SU! do?  They have new stamps sets, framelits and kits featuring succulents…

I have a terrarium and it’s amazing.  It doesn’t have succulents in it but I promise it never needs a thing (water, food, etc.)!  Perfect plant.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for July…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Preprinted calendar source Papersource.com
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Old OLive, Pear Pizazz, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate
  • Stamps:  Live, Love, Grow (pg. 147 Annual Catalog)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments: SU!  Water Color Pencils, Aqua Painter or Blender Pen

Digits

  • Stamp sentiment upper left corner
  • Stamp Terrarium in Smoky Slate.
  • Stamp dirt in Crumb Cake and details in Early Espresso
  • Stamp tallest plant on right in Pear Pizazz and Old Olive.  Make a mask for this plant by stamping on post it note and “fussy cutting” image.
  • Cover tallest stamped plant with mask.
  • Stamp shortest plant in Mint Macaron and Pear Pizazz.  Make a mask for this plant by stamping on post it note and “fussy cutting” image.
  • Cover smallest stamped plant with mask.
  • Now stamp second tallest plant next to tallest plant in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.  Remove mask from tallest plant.
  • Stamp last plant on left in Mossy Meadow
  • Remove mask from smallest plant
  • Using the Smoky Slate water color pencil, scribble some shadow lines under terrarium.  Wash over with Aqua Painter and water.

How quick was that for planting a terrarium?  Store your “fussy cutting” pieces in the stamp set container to be used again.

Thanks so much for stopping by today…

  1. This is another beautiful calendar page, Billie. I, too, love succulents and have several. I have a terrarium in an old soda bottle and it lives with very little water. So fun!! I love your selection of plants and your coloring of them. July will be an inspiring month with this calendar page. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I’m up late waiting for Santa!!

    • We were up late as “the littles” could not settle down. Sure made Santa’s arrival a lot later than anticipated. And then this morning they were up at 5:45 a.m. We will all need naps later today!…B!
